Today we offer a bit of odds and ends. We get tagged, we do what is asked. But for the record for our newer friends in the blogosphere, we don’t tag. Call it a law or a commandement. First we got tagged by Sweet Cops Wife. Here is what she asked of us:
1. DON’T change your clothes. Check.
4. Post that picture with NO editing. Who edits?
Here’s the rules to the Christmas Spirit award:
You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award. The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas. You must link back to the person who gave you the award. You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. If you can’t limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! Pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 50. It’s up to you! But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment. Thanks, Lyn!
What I love about Christmas:
1. Wearing mistletoe on my belt buckle. It is a Weiser men’s family tradition since 1854 when my great-great-great grandfather Fellatio Weiser started this fine venture. It is not for the weak of heart. For some weird reason, most women find this practice appalling. But the ones that don’t, well it can be a lot of fun.
2. Listening to the WTIT version of “A Christmas Carole”. In our version the Scrachits are so poor, that they tell Tiny Tim, “It’s going to be a memorial Christmas for you. Not only will we have Christmas dinner but you are going to be Christmas dinner.” It’s not everyone’s favorite version, but I laugh my ass off every year.
3. Christmas Day with the twins. They dress up in Mrs. Santa’s outfits and try to find their present. You probably figured out that this is not hard to do. They just follow the mistletoe. The amazing thing is that they NEVER remember this trick from the previous year.
4. Drinking Christmas Cheer. I love when people with alcohol problems invent new words. I used to think I drank Smirnoff for two days straight. Now I “do a bit of Christmas Cheer” for 48 hours. Trust me, Rudolph is not the only one with a red nose on the fucking 26th.
5. And lastly, I love Christmas for the kids. Their excitement is pretty special. Pictured are my two perfect grandaughters and newest additions to the family. Lauren is 6, Lindsay is 2 1/2. (Obviously, the picture is from not from this year. But I love it still.) Here’s a toast to you my friends, and the children in your life and the Christmas child in your soul.
Tomorrow is Friday and we will return
at the WTIT Blog with Dating Profiles.
We hope you plan to be with us then.
Same time. Same blog.
